Contact someone in the county jail?

People are committed to the Jefferson County Detention center in accordance with the laws of the State of Tennessee. The jail staff has no legal authority to release anyone without proper orders from the court. The Jefferson County Detention Center operates on the principal that both the individual and the jail staff share the responsibility for creating a safe and orderly jail setting. The Sheriff and his staff are the only persons responsible for the operation and control of the jail. They will strive to act fairly and humanely, according to law. The Sheriff has established rules to guide the jail. Only the jail staff has the authority and responsibility to impose and enforce these rules. The rules may seem strict at times; however, they are made to ensure the jail is run safely, securely and fairly.
